Coventry boss Aidy Boothroyd admitted he is keen to sign Marlon King before the transfer window deadline.

The Sky Blues manager is still looking at departures and arrivals at the club before the window shuts on 31 August and would like to add King to his ranks.

"There will be a couple more ins and outs because I think you need a tight squad with players you know you will use," he told the club's official website.

"Marlon King has been training with us for the last few days and we had him go through a raft of tests to measure his levels of fitness.

"Contract talks are still ongoing but I would like to bring him here and now it is just a case of coming to some sort of agreement and I'm hopeful I can do that."
